Cervical spine is made up of seven vertebra bodies and is separated with the help of aninter-vertebral disc. Cervical discs help in bending and side-ward movement of the neck.They also help in stabilizing the neck and act as a shock absorber. Cervical discsare damaged due to disc herniation caused by trauma or degenerative diseases. Neck pain, shoulder pain, headache, and neurological symptoms such as numbness, weakness, and radiation of pain to both arms are some of the symptoms of cervical disc herniation or degeneration. As the degenerative disc disease progresses, there is pain, less flexibility, and stiffness of the neck. Initially, cervical disc disease is treated with the help of anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, cold/heat therapy, and spine injections. However, surgical treatment is recommended when conventional treatments fail.

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery are the most common and traditional types of cervical disc surgeries. Total cervical disc is a surgical procedure, in which disc/discs are removed or replaced with artificial disc device/devices. An artificial disc device is inserted between two cervical vertebras after the removal of anintervertebral disc in order to preserve the motion at the disc space. Total cervical disc replacement helps in maintaining normal neck motion, eliminating the need for bone grafting, reducing degeneration of adjacent segments of cervical spine, and returning to normal activities. Some of the adverse effects associated with total cervical disc replacement are nerve injury, bleeding, infection, difficulty in breathing, failure to relief symptoms, and stroke.

North America dominates the global market forcervical total disc replacement due to a large aging population. Asia is expected to witness high growth rates in the next five years in thecervical total disc replacement market. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing cervical total disc replacement markets in Asia Pacific. Some of the key driving factors of growth of the cervical total disc replacement market in emerging countries area large pool of patients, increase in healthcare expenditure, and rising government funding.

In recent years, adoption of cervical total disc replacement surgery has increased due to increasing prevalence of pseudo-arthrosis leading to anterior cervical disc fusion surgery. Rise in aging population, improved government funding, and changing lifestyle are some of the key factors driving growth of the global cervical total disc replacement market. In addition, increasing healthcare awareness is also fueling growth of the global cervical total disc replacement market. However, nucleus replacement devices, side effects of the surgery, and issues in healthcare reimbursements are some of the major factors restraining growth of the global cervical total disc replacement market.
